the damage done by a former earthquake

very beautiful church, open even on Mondays. The crypta is very impressive, and maybe the unrestored damage done by a former earthquake is meanwhile part of the special atmosphere.

I drove by car, but one could walk from the center of town as it's just outside Tuscania. It is a simple but beautiful church. There was an attendant and a donation offering if one wishes. I loved walking the grounds as well. I especially enjoyed taking photographic details of the church.
